    Yeah I realise that. It's just an eyesore of a way to open such a ridiculously long post. Puts people off reading the post. If that was the only pic then yeah.

    It's merely illustrates what Apple are pushing users into by not adding a way to maintain the USB & wifi sync feature without external services.

    Drew, it may help the poster and others if you explain exactly why setting up a server is nonsense.

     

    Don't get me wrong, I won't be bothering to set up one either, but several are attempting it.

     

    You asked me to explain why it's not a realistic option & Barney-15E claimed the explanation was a strawman.

     

    I don't think you Barney-15E, Csound1, KiltedTim or even me could be described as 'typical Mac users'.

     

    All I'm saying is revert to be happy again.

    Please take some time to explain why you think this idea needs to be torn down?

     

    PS, the pic got mangled when I had to scale to size (perhaps this is new to you - try clicking an image in posts) it seemed unfair to show it with less width. For that I apologize.

    For me? I do not  wish to go backwards with OSXs I am more than happy with iCloud, as I say so it seems are over 320 million others. The option is not there in this OSX so to stay with Mavericks and do what a few wish to do is currently only obtainable by setting up a local server.

     

    For me, reverting is simply never an option. Just a stop gap measure until one gets used to the implemetation, or lack of, or until Apple sees enough demand to bring t back. Currently that does not seem to be the case.

    You don't need to scale it. The forum software will do it automatically. Clicking on the pix will display the full size pix.

    Regardless, you should have posted a link with a short explanation of what it is (instead of a huge, long, unreadable post)

    A lot of people cannot put sensitive address and calendar information into iCloud.

     

    Why can't we sync between our phones and our desktop computers via a wired connection, like we used to be able to?

    Because that function has been removed.

  • nekabadesvtln Level 1 Level 1

    Has anyone tried this app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/devicesync-for-ios/id737867459?mt=8 . It is supposed to allow you to sync calendar with Mavericks over USB.

  • handsOFFmydata Level 1 Level 1

    READ ALL DESCRIPTION INCLUDING THE WARNINGS ...

     

    It is not a sync app, it's a one way dump/copy from iOS to OSX. Your calendar updates on OSX will get overwritten. Does nothing for contacts. It's a bait app for a funding for further development.

    …to make 10.9 work like everything below 10.9.

    No, it doesn't make it work anything like it did below 10.9. It works much better, but not for you.

  • Tyrfing Level 1 Level 1

    Darn!

     

    I upgraded both to iOS 7 and Maverick( My mail.app is running at between 105 and 240% for the 3 week in a row now ) and when it comes to syncing my iPhone with my MBA I'm now in some kind of Android realm?!?

     

    This is a terrible maintenance cost, and why would I ever store anything on a cloud-whatever ever?

    That's just too trendy for me.

     

    Amongst other things the machines for doing development is on a separate LAN with no internet access,

    this means no backups for my dev team...

     

    I'm beyond disappointed with Apple for removing this! For removing this feature. I have been buying your products since 1992, and in December 2013 you shoot me in the leg? Who told you to hit the edge of the axe with a hammer? I can tell you right now it does not become any sharper, you will actually make it dull.

     

    Does this mean I should set up my own local "iCloud?" iCloudd?

    Or what is the idea behind this ridiculous stunt?

     

    I'm tired of all this iThis and iThat stuff, when will have the industrial grade stuff back? Or is that a thing for SuperMicro?

    Even the new Mac Pro looks like a tampon with a latex corsette...

  • petermac87 Level 5 Level 5

    Rant to  Apple, not us. It may make you feel better but it won't help change their minds.

    Like I did not already tell them?

     

    There are 2 options

    1) Accept what they have done

    2) Fix it

     

    Does anyone on here know what it takes to make a private iCloud?

    Apart from the obvious changes in the local DNS, i e

    Yeah, it has been discussed multiple times somewhere here but got lost …

    OSX Server, ownCloud, Baikal, etc.

    Depends upon what you expect. I use a Time Capsule and can access it anywhere off the internet by my ip address. Its password protected. Its my cloud of sorts.

    How do you use that to synchronize Contacts and Calendars with an iPhone?
